Eat These 6 Treats & Save Yourself A Whopping 100 Calories Per Bite

Snacking on unhealthy food is one easy way to pile on the pounds and I’m glad to say that one of the main benefits of my diet plan is that it pretty much kills that dead, but of course from time to time we all want to snack on something different and that’s where making these choices as healthy as possible is vital so you’re happy when you stand in front of that mirror and smile instead of wanting to break down and cry!

Bite for bite making the right choices can really help you to exhibit proper nutrition – Lunch Box Dieters know that by eating the contents of their box they’re fat less to ramp up the calories but from time to time we all want a snack and instead of reaching for choclate bars, packets of crisps and whole packets of biscuits, it’s good to save the waist line! We all have favorite snacks and chances are that they aren’t healthy options. If you want to kick start your dieting efforts, then it’s time to find healthy alternatives. These seven treats can save you calories in each bite and work towards proper nutrition. Try these as healthy alternatives to snacks that you have been enjoying for years.

  1. Baked Kale Crisps: If you can’t stay away from potato chips, then this make for a great salty option. You simply wash and dry kale and then bake it in the oven, topping it with a sprinkle of sea salt. Anybody who has ever experienced these know that they are just as addictive as their potato counterpart!
  2. Baked Apples: If you love something sweet and flavorful then you can’t go wrong with this treat! Rather than having an apple pie that is loaded with fat, this is easy to make and satisfies your craving. Peel an apple, place in a dish, sprinkle with cinnamon and microwave for a couple of minutes. Voila! You have a sweet treat that is low in calories and puts a smile on your face!
  3. Fresh Salsa with Baked Tortilla Strips: Who doesn’t love chips and salsa? This healthy alternative saves you a ton of calories and is just as enjoyable. You can make your own fresh salsa with fresh tomatoes, tomato sauce, peppers, coriander, and onions. Then either purchase baked tortilla chips or make your own by oven baking fresh tortillas. Cut into strips and it saves on calories too! Dip away and enjoy this tasty treat!
  4. Fresh Vegetables with Fat Free Ranch Dressing: We all love veggies and dip but it’s the dip part that can just kill us. If you must dip your fresh carrots, celery, peppers, and broccoli do so but use fat free ranch to do so. This saves you a bundle of calories and still feels like a substantial snack.
  5. Cottage Cheese Dip with Whole Grain Crackers: Again for those that like to dip you can save a ton of calories by opting for healthier alternatives. Take cottage cheese, mix with a spoonful of fat free mayo and fat free sour cream, throw in some fresh dill and blend. This makes an excellent dip and when you partner it with whole grain crackers you are getting a nice addition to your snack too!
  6. Hummus with Whole Wheat Pita: A good combination snack gives us calories with purpose. When you take whole wheat pita rather than white pita that saves you calories and gives you fiber. You will always find good nutritional value in hummus and it’s way better than eating something fatty like cheese.

Get creative and have fun with your lower calorie snacks. They will often satisfy your cravings and yet are much healthier options. Think of the things that you love to eat and then search for ways to make a healthier and lower calorie version. This can become addicting so prepare for healthier ways of eating almost everything that you enjoy in no time at all!
